What is HypnoBirthing®
HypnoBirthing® is a comprehensive childbirth education program that teaches a woman and their birthing partner skills on how to prepare for a positive and calm birthing experience, no matter how or where a woman plans to birth.
HypnoBirthing® is grounded by the philosophy that childbirth is a normal part of life and when a woman understands the physiology behind labour and birth, the importance of relaxation, trusts her birthing body and uses HypnoBirthing® techniques, a woman can birth in a relaxed and calm way. A HypnoBirthing® woman is aware of everything that is going on around her (like meditation) yet is calm, relaxed and in tune with her body.
During the HypnoBirthing® course, the woman and her birthing partner are taught HypnoBirthing® techniques of deep relaxation, breathing techniques, positive affirmation’s and visualization which are practiced for the remainder of her pregnancy. This also allows the woman to bond with her baby and connect with her body. The course also empowers the woman and her birthing partner with skills to help navigate decision making during both pregnancy and labour. When the HypnoBirthing® woman goes into labour she and her birthing partner are prepared and empowered to achieve an informed, calm and gentle birth.
HypnoBirthing® is not just for first time Mums, it can be for women that have had other babies but may be wanting to approach birth with some skills to ensure they are feeling more confident going in to labour and birth.
